Wow! Too close to home. Thankfully your kids were safe. Unfortunately, others were not. I was watching the news this evening, local and national. All the tv stations did a story on Kendrick Castillo, hero, student, who saved numerous lives by tackling the gunman and taking a bullet. Gut wrenching and emotional, listening to his parents and best friends.

I am a campus monitor at a high school. Numerous questions were asked to me if an active shooter came on campus, would I take a bullet to save lives.

Very sad and wrong that this is a reality that we have to face in today's society.
